At Abbotsford Hospice Society, we engaged the services of Patricia for our annual gala, which is the major annual event for us. She came in at the last minute and was able to expertly guide us to a successful conclusion.

I had the pleasure of working with Patricia on a key stakeholder-engagement event which allowed us to share our “Learning Revolution message” with the broader business community. Patricia was definitely “all in” on pulling together the logistics for this banquet event and professionally orchestrated a thousand and one details on “the day we brought Sir Ken Robinson to town”. By pulling off a successful event we were also able increase connections to the cause of our capital campaign. Very happy to recommend Patricia to any organization looking to knock one outta the park as we did together. If we were to plan another significant event in the future it would make Perfect Sense to call on Patricia again.
